There are hopeful signs on Buffalo's West Side. New businesses are opening their doors on Grant Street and Newell Nussbaumer of Buffalo Rising believes the activity is an indication of good things to come. He thinks the types of retailers showing up in the neighborhood will spark enough shopping to sustain the businesses and avoid some of the failures of the past. Nussbaumer says many of the shops have organized West Side Wednesdays, a coordinated effort to create a fun, vibrant event for shoppers.
